First game of the season. Official hype thread.
Reaalllyyy hope we start on the right foot, 'cause we could be in trouble if we stumble here. Toronto, San Jose, Phoenix, Anaheim, Kings.. why hockey god why
Yeah, I really hope we win too. It's better than a loss.
Going 3-3 to start the season would be awesome.
we already have a hype thread.
the panic thread.
Well, we didn't really get the roster in order during pre-season because of the bizarre schedule of games.
With so much change in the roster between last year and this year, might take a week or two to get things going.
I suspect we'll lose both games on the weekend and the entire board will be on suicide watch.
Yeah, is there a specific reason why we have 6 straight on the road to start the season? And why the heck are we only starting on Friday when the season started on Tuesday (in a compressed schedule year, no less)? This scheduling isn't going to do us any favors.
Yeah, sorry about that. On mobile device.
We should win the Buffalo, Phoenix, and Anaheim games. If we can get another 3 or 4 points against Toronto, San Jose, or LA we should be in great shape.
We are going 2-4. Wins against Buf and Phx. That's it.
The schedule makers really went full moron on a number of teams this year. There is literally next to nothing happening at the CTC right now so there is no excuse for 6 road games to start the year.
And I have to agree with Carlyle. Toronto starting the year with a back-to-back on the road is ridiculous. Cherry is right, someone needs to slap the schedule-maker.
If we do not win Fridays game, then the season will be over and I will become a full time bruins fan.
In all seriousness, I think we have a chance at winning the games vs the Sabres, anaheim and phoenix.
we can beat the leafs! lehner should start since its a back to back.
You guys are so pessimistic. We're going 82-0 this year in the regular season and 16-3 in the playoffs.
Just you wait.
So Toronto is somehow unbeatable team for us ? I watched games against MTL and PHI. They play like *****. They are beatable, like others. 6 games-12 points.
Everyone is so gosh darn optimistic.
Leafs dont know how to make clean breakout passes or how defensive coverage works.
And we still make Reimer looks like hof'er
After the beating we took in the preseason at the hands of the Islanders... I think the Senators will be looking to play hard and not be embarrassed. We will win at least 4 of first 6.
So who's gonna be the 6th D - Gryba or Corvo? I'm not hoping Corvo.
Based on the lines at practice the last 2 days, it looks like Gryba and Kassian are sitting.
Why such a long wait
Is Spezza playing?
